Confirming the incident on Monday, Daniel Ndukwe, the Enugu command spokesman, said Lawal Abubakar, the police commissioner, has ordered a “full-scale investigation” into the matter.

The gunmen were said to have attacked the divisional headquarters on October 9, and vandalised operational vehicles and other items in the station.

Ndukwe said the police commissioner has also ordered a manhunt for the abductors of the missing officer.

“The commissioner has ordered the state criminal investigation department (SCID) and tactical teams of the command to intensify ongoing investigation to locate a missing female personnel,” he said.

“They are to fish out the yet-to-be-identified hoodlums, who in their numbers, attacked and vandalised vehicles and other items at the police divisional headquarters.”

According to NAN, the police spokesman said the commissioner gave the order after leading a team of senior officers of the command’s tactical/operational teams to the divisional headquarters.
